Brian Klug sent me today Independent Jewish Voices‘ ad published in yesterday’s Times of London protesting the siege of Gaza and the Qassam attacks on Israeli targets. The ad read:
The siege of Gaza is causing devastating social and economic consequences and threatens a humanitarian catastrophe…The collective punishment of the people of Gaza is illegal under international law. We condemn all attacks on civilians, including the rocket attacks on the people of southern Israel.
We call upon the Israeli government to lift the blockade of Gaza, for both sides to observe a ceasefire as a first step toward a just, comprehensive settlement, and for the international community to bring the isolation of Gaza to an end.
We need to do something similar for the American media. Anyone willing to join me?
